Kat and Meg Conquer the World by Anna Priemaza

Kat and Meg Conquer the World

Kat and Meg couldn’t be more different. Kat’s anxiety makes it hard for her to talk to new people. The only place she feels safe is in front of her computer, playing her favorite video game. Meg hates being alone, but her ADHD keeps pushing people away. Friends. Her boyfriend. Even the stepfather who raised her. But when the two girls are thrown together for a year-long science project, they discover they do have one thing in common: their ob...

    This. book. I want everyone in the world to read this book.Where to even begin?KAT AND MEG wove its way into my heart and then set it on fire. I cannot get over how brilliant this book is, on so many different levels. The dual POV voices of Kat and Meg are so genuine and specific to them. Their dialogue is clever and spot-on. The relationships in this book develop like real-life people's do. The way Kat and Meg come to care about one another--and...

    The thing about this book is, it was written for me. Okay. Not really. But it sure felt that way while I was reading. Because:1. It has everything I want from a book.2. I became ridiculously immersed in the story.3. Kat is basically me. This book is absolutely hilarious. I laughed out loud more times than I can count. But I also cried. I felt every heart-twisting thing the characters were going through like it was happening to me. And to top it o...

    This book! I LOVE this book. I won't lie, I finished reading it a few weeks ago and I have spent every day since trying to figure out how to encapsulate just how much I love it. It hit absolutely every one of my soft spots. Wonderful friendships. Complex families. Adorable old men. Fun and realistic romance. VIDEO GAMES. And all of it delivered through two amazing, unique girls who simply jump off the page. Kat IS teenage me, and her thoughts and...

    TO THE RIFT!!!Okay, that reference will only make sense to people who have already read the book, but I wanted to put it there because a) it’s fun to write, and b) I think it shows the cool and **gloriously** nerdy feel of this book. Because seriously, this book is so nerdy and SO GOOD. My geeky heart loved the smart and funny references to all my faves (any book that references Harry Potter is instantly special to me), but this book is WAY mor...

    BUT REALLY GUYS THIS IS THE BEST BOOK!So I got to read this as part of our critique group and I've seen this book from early stages but even before editing I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. And it all comes down to the characters.Kat and Meg are two of the most relatable protagonists I've read in young adult fiction. They both have their problems, flaws and crippling self doubts, but they also have their talents and their larger than life personalities. Kat s...

    KAT AND MEG CONQUER THE WORLD is so much more than you ever think it could possibly be. Upon meeting Kat you might bristle at some of her thoughts, including most that escape her lips. Then you meet Meg, a tidal wave of personality that can't quite be contained. Video games are eased in the mix and you wonder, how, oh how will this all work?That is when you have to tip your hat to Anna Priemaza, who makes this imperfect friendship one of the most...

    I hate people."Even me?" Meg asks, which could mean she's a mind reader, but probably just means I accidentally said that out loud."You're not people. You're Meg."And something about the way she grins at that makes me feel the tiniest bit better.Kat is a freshman. Quiet and organized, a voracious fan of YouTuber LumberLegs. Kat does not expect to make friends at her new school in Alberta (panic attacks can do that to a person) until she runs into...

    Just finished this dear, sweet, funny, awesome book and am now thinking about how well it does two distinct PoV, how endearing and relatable they both were whilst being completely different and yet the perfect fit for each other, and how cool it is to read about female friendship and neurodiversity and also many, many snacks. I appreciate the hell out of all of these things.

    I couldn't put it down. The characters were so relatable, and I just had to see how it would end. Can't wait to read the print version!

    You know those books where you desperately wish the MC was real because you know--KNOW--s/he should be your IRL best friend?This book had TWO OF THOSE. Kat and Meg are both such full, flawed, rounded, achingly real characters. I loved that this story focused on their friendship more than anything--the intensity and importance of that when you're in high school is immeasurable, and it always seems to get shunted aside by romance.Better yet, Kat's ...

    There was, at some point, a transition in the literature we read growing up. I think most of us experience it - an indefinable moment when books stopped being "fun" and started being "poignant." It went from Sideways Stories and Fourth Grade Nothings and Holes to, "They're all dying...WHY ARE ALL THE CHARACTERS DYING?" Now, don't get me wrong; poignant is important, and wonderful, and beautiful. I just wish that, more frequently, it could be fun,...

    You know how, when people ask agents and editors what they look for in a book, they say "Voice," and it's always kind of this nebulous (and maybe slightly frustrating) thing? This book is what they're talking about.Kat and Meg are both similar, yet distinct. They have their strengths, their weaknesses, and their quirks and idiosyncrasies that make them feel fleshed out and real and like I would totally have been best friends with those delightful...

    I was lucky enough to read an ARC of this book, and it definitely had me smiling from start to finish. I can't stress enough how refreshing it is to read a contemporary YA that deals with friendship first, while deftly navigating tough family situations, anxiety and ADHD, first loves, and video games. KAT AND MEG is about the friendship of two very different girls who often mess up, but come through for each other in big ways. Anna Priemaza write...

    My bday present to myself was finishing this delightful book, which I've been reading and savoring and enjoying for awhile now. I love Kat and Meg in this - their evolving friendship and their own personal struggles, the way their shared obsession ultimately connects them to each other. This has such warmth and humor and yet also such real emotion about relationships and family. There are not enough books about female friendships, and this is a l...

    This book, you all. THIS BOOK. I'm convinced that I've just made two very best friends, and we will skateboard together (even though I'm bad at it) and will drink hot chocolate with mini marshmallows while watching video game walkthroughs and making each other laugh. Reading Kat and Meg Conquer the World is like wrapping yourself up in a warm, fuzzy, cosy blanket. That's really the only way to describe it. This is a book that cloaks you in its wa...
